When someone wants to commission from you, but won't make the effort to get in touch with you. I am a busy person, especially when it comes to sewing. Expecting -me- to chase -you- down is ridiculous. I do not need to make you anything. I'm not going to beg you to know what it is you want me to make. If you want it, put in the effort to get in contact with me.

I really hate the random feeling of thinking i can only pull of male characters when i get sad about certain apects of myself, despite the fact i know other wise. I'm my own worst enemy sometimes. I usally start to hate the broadness of my back and my hands. Then it transitions into, i feel so unable to make multiple facial expressions.

(;^; ) I will strive harder!!!!! and not let myself feel so down.

I've seen it around lately that people are angry about 'elitist' cosplayers looking down on those who don't make their own costumes. They're unhappy that they don't get any respect as cosplayers just because of their inability to sew, or their lack of time, or whatever. Their views are fair. I just don't share them.

I don't have anything against people who commission cosplays. They can be wicked fun people, and some of my closest cosplay friends have no idea how to work a sewing machine. But they just don't get a good deal of respect from me for their costume. As people, as friends, yes. As models, yes. Makeup-artists, yes. But for their costume, no. When someone just throws money at something to make it happen...

And that's my unpopular opinion of the day.

Biggest pet peeve is cosplayers who act nice but then turn out to be total psychos when they think no one is looking. I really admired JasonTerror but after what he said to someone on Tumblr, I don't think I'll ever look at them the same.

So I should just accept a lack of respect because I can't sew, or because I simply don't have the time too? That's not fair. When it comes to sewing, my hands are basically cinder-blocks attached to my wrists. I have tried to sew before, I really have. And it turned out so horrid I burned what I made and never looked back. Does that mean I deserve less respect as a cosplayer? :/

To be fair he does have a habit of completely changing from nice guy to full on angry man.

I went out of my way to say that I don't see people who don't make their own costumes as undeserving of respect. I just find it difficult to see something that someone purchased as a reason to respect them more.

Like this. If my friend bought a Mustang, that would be frikkin sweet. It took work and time for him to save up the money, and I would constantly say "nah, let's take your car instead" just to sit in the passenger seat, but in the end it's just an item that he spent some money for. It's not a bad thing. It is what it is.

Honestly, in my opinion what's meant by "respect" is simply showing common courtesy and not being insulting and looking down on someone.

Example A!
Person 1: Oh my god, I love your cosplay! Sailor Moon is my favorite! How long did it take you to make it??
Person 2: Thank you, ah actually I commissioned it from GetYourCosplayHere dot com
Person 1: Well, it looks great on you! Can I have your picture?

Vs!

Example B
Person 1: Oh my god, I love your cosplay! Sailor Moon is my favorite! How long did it take you to make it??
Person 2: Thank you, ah actually I commissioned it from GetYourCosplayHere dot com
Person 1: What? That's crap, you're such a fake cosplayer, I bet it's cheap too. Real cosplayers make their own costumes. Allow me to give you the stink eye as I walk away in disdain!

I will admit that my smile does fade a little when someone tells me they ordered a cosplay off a website, but the person from Example B is clearly fostering some sort of complex derived from their perceived superiority. My prescription for them is to be pushed into a mud puddle by a sneaker-wearing Sasuke cosplayer.

On a less ludicrous note, I guess I define respect differently than you. Your measurement starts at zero. My spectrum has a positive and negative side, with 'zero' being neutrality rather than a complete disregard for their worth as a human being. In my mind, the situation described in B would be, I guess, negative respect, a status gained from willful stupidity or some malevolent act, while the situation described in A (with a punctuation change from exclamation point to period) would be the change from positive respect to neutrality.

God, Ethics class made me into a horrible human being. Sorry this reads like an essay. I've clearly been writing too many of them.

Everyone and everything deserves respect, but nobody should be more respected just because they bought their costumes. That has no sense at all. Cosplayers who do their own costumes take a lot of hard work to achieve their goal and, when the result looks great, they are praised for that hard work. They took not only the effort to work to pay for all the materials, but also did the extra hard work of making everything. If a cosplayer who comissions is jealous because they want the compliments that those cosplayers received due to make everything from scratch, then the cosplayer who pays for comissions should be a cosplayer who makes everything from scratch. This will take a lot of years of learning and true love for arts and crafts, but if the cosplayer loves it and is not into it just for the compliments, they will enjoy it.
